Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri (born October 27, 1967) is a Nigerian politician and the current Governor of Adamawa State. He was a member of the Adamawa State House of Assembly and was appointed the Speaker of the House. He became the acting Governor of Adamawa State following the impeachment of admiral Murtala Nyako the former governor of the state in July 2014, handing later to Bala James Ngilari after serving for three months.
After the collation of results of the state gubernatorial election on the 9th of March 2019, Fintiri emerged as winner of the election with the highest number of votes. However, the election was declared inconclusive because the number of cancelled votes was more than the margin between the winner and his close opponent. Fintiri was declared winner of the by-election in the early hours of Friday after having secured 376,552 votes to defeat the incumbent Governor Jibrilla Bindow of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who polled 336,386 votes.
